    Hallo mate. Welcome to the forums.

    real password protection is a funny old game. Its not as simple as just a HTML tag, I am afraid.

    Also, do not be tempted by anything JavaScript for passwords. It just doesn't cut the mustard, I am afraid.

    The two, best ways to password protect are either using a server-side language (like Perl, PHP or ASP ) or by using htaccess.

    For Perl, PHP and ASP scripts, free, try http://www.hotscripts.com

    For a great tutorial on htaccess, try http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/html/97/08/index2a.html?tw=backend

    Have a go at these, and choose whichever suits you better. Any questions, get back to us...

    I am afraid not.

    HTML on its own is simple markup language, and asking it to do clever things would be like asking a newspaper to play a radio station.

    For s simpler solution, try searching for a free password gate. I found this one - http://www.4allfree.com/shpp.htm
    but did not get a chance to try it out.

    Also, I highly recommend you staty away from bravenet.com . They are not very nicepeople.

    thanks, but a friend of mine gave me a site (Javefile.com) it's really cool. You find what your looking for, then it lets you download a text file containing the Javascript or applet for the thing u wanna do. U might wanna check it out.

    Welcome to the forums ZanarkandAbe

    As Dean pointed out earlier

    It would take just a click of the mouse and no special software to view your user/password(s) It is not a matter of if somebody will get them, but when many people do.
